    • The Big Cat is a wonderful, lightweight, powerful air rifle. Adding the Crosman Nitro Piston delivers even more benefits!

      Awesome power is what you need to hunt successfully, and the Gamo Big Cat has it!

      From the all-weather synthetic stock to the bull barrel, this rifle is bound to please any shooter who aims to take game. For more precise shooting and to get the most accuracy from the gun, the Big Cat comes with a 3-9x40 scope and mount.

      The Monte Carlo buttstock has a raised cheekpiece on each side, making this gun ideal for right- or left-handed shooters. It also has the Shock Wave Absorber (SWA) to reduce felt recoil. Shoot either lead pellets or PBA ammo to attain your hunting goals. Of course, you don't have to hunt with this gun! It's a fun plinker and will give you hours of shooting pleasure.

    Things I liked: I am new to air rifles, this is my first purchase. But I am thoroughly enjoying it, once I got the scope adjusted I am hitting the targets at 25 and 50 yards. I have to say all of the tutorial videos are a fantastic addition to the site. I am probably spending way too much time on the site, now I am looking to add a CO2 pellet pistol. Looking at the Gamo PT-80, but haven't made up my mind yet. At 25 yards the accuracy is really good, at fifty yards definitely have to adjust accordingly, but then as I said, I am new to shooting. Definitely taking safety seriously. Many reviews say these are not toys. They are not. The trap I purchased can handle 22 rimshots, and the pellets are making noticeable marks on back plate and are completely flatten or broken apart. The 3x9 scope is great, its a nice addition I was surprised on the effort to compress the nitro piston, but I am used to it now. I haven't not tired adjusting the trigger, but do appreciate the convenience of the safety.

    Things I would have changed: So far nothing.

    Things I liked: Everything , this is one of the best guns you could buy for 200 dollars

    Things I would have changed: Nothing

    What others should know: When you first shoot this gun there might be somewhat of a combustion going in the barrel but after a while of breaking in the gun you won't have this going on

    • JANARDAN from India asked:

      this air gun weight?

      • Stanley from USA:

        6.1 pounds.

    • Madhur Moris from India asked:

      can i import this air gun to india?

      • Michael from USA asked:

        Is there a way for me to get a SAT trigger put on this rifle as well?

        • Edith from USA:

          At this time, Gamo isn't selling their SAT trigger separately. You can get it only if you buy a gun with the SAT already installed. An alternate is to buy an aftermarket trigger from Charlie da Tuna. Before the SAT trigger was developed, CDT's aftermarket GRT trigger was the way to go.
